THE GENERAL'S LETTER PAPERS ORDERED TO BE BURNED London. Januarv 11. It was learned to-night that General Booth's letter to the High Council was sent to the Army's paper, the 'War Cry, 'and that 20,000 copies n-nm actiiallv minted before the Hich Council discovered the action. The' Council stopped the publication and or dered the copies already printed to be burned at the Army's printing works in St. Albans. The High Council took the view that the lettor was a piece of propaganda written with the idea of influencing ( their decision, as well as the opinion of , the rank and file. The unanimity of | to-day'.-- decision mfgests that if the General does not accede to tho council's | request, it will declare him unfit to carry out his duties. General Booth has tctained Mr. W. A. Jowitt, K.C., to .address the High fV)iin--il rin his behalf.

THE LONGEST DAY DIFFERING DATES VARIATIONS FROM DAY TO DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 12 January 1929
THE LONGEST DAY DIFFERING DATES &nbsp; VARIATIONS FROM DAY TO DAY. ? &nbsp; A question, often asked is, which is the longest day? The answer is (says a writer in the Melbourne "Age" of December 22) generally given promptly — and often incorrectly. This is not surprising as the longest day may be different in different parts of the Southern Heniisphere, and varies slight- ly from year to year. At any particular place in the South- ern Hemisphere length of the day depends on the distance that the sun is north or south of the equator — the further south the sun is the longer it remains above the horizon. Thus the longest day in the Southern Hemis- phere will be that during which the sun reaches its most southerly posi- tion. This year, for instance, the sun which moves southward during the early part of December, is furthest south (the solstice) on December 22 at 2.6 a.m. Greenwich time and then com-- mences to move northward. The sol- stice corresponds to 22nd December...
EFFECTS OF EXHAUSTION INEVITABLE SLOW PROGRESS London, January 10. [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 12 January 1929
EFFECTS OF EXHAUSTION INEVITABLE SLOW PROGRESS London, January 10. The British Medical Journal states that the recent bulletins indicate a &nbsp; slight but by no means negligible im- provement in the King's condition. With such conspicuous exhaustion of body and mind, progress must be slow and difficult. The position is not yet free of anxiety, and early and smooth convalescence is out of the question after strcptococcal septicaemia, associ- ated with empyema, in a patient of middle age. His Majesty is making as much headway as could be expected, and since January 1, the upward steps have outnumbered the downward steps. The wound is healing satisfactorily, and the chest symptoms are now of secondary importance, while the pulse is improved and is less easily disturbed. Professor Dodds is making periodical estimates of the calcium content of the blood and other biochemical analysis. The "Lancet" agrees that any start- ling improvement in the King's con- dition cannot be expec...
The Geraldton Guardian & Express SATURDAY, JANUARY 12, 1929 ANGLO-AMERICAN RELATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 12 January 1929
The Geraldton Guardian & Express SATURDAY, JANUARY 12, 1929 ANGLO-AMERICAN RELATIONS. It is a curious but indisputable fact that the mannerisms and idiosyncracies of one's relatives and close friends are apt to be exasperating in a degree to which the behaviour of total strangers &nbsp; could not possibly affect one. It is probable that this simple human fact bears more definitely upon the curious phenomenon of exacerbated Anglo-Am- &nbsp; erican relations than any deeper or ap- parently weightier factor. For the past two decades, there has been growing a current of imperfectly suppressed ir- ritation between the two countries, and between individual citizens on either side of the Atlantic. The situation has now reached a stage whereat it contains at least some elements of dan- ger; for example, there can be little doubt that the "Big Navy" bloc in the American Senate has in its atti- tude grave elements of Anglophobia, which have led almost insensibly to a p...
CHAMBER OF COMMERCE MANY ACTIVITIES RECORDED [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 12 January 1929
CHAMBER OF COMMERCE MANY ACTIVITIES RECORDED The quarterly meeting of the Gerald- ton Chamber of Commerce was held at the Commonwealth Hotel last night. Mr. A. C. Bogle presided over a good at- tendance. Apologies were received from the president (Mr. A. H. Mountain) and Mr. A. S. Price. The secretary read his quarterly re- port , reviewing the activities of the Chamber for the past quarter. The chairman asked members to note that they had been instrumental in getting the railway department to at- tach a cool storage van on the Tuesday and Friday trains to Meekatharra. The lack of interest taken in the &nbsp; Chamber by many of its members was commented upon and each member pre- sent promised to bring another along to the annual meeting and smoke social, to be held in the first week of April. The chairman said he wished members would attend the committee meetings, even if they were not members of the committee, as they could make help- ful suggestions, though they could not ...
BUSH FIRES POSITION IN N.S.W. RAIN CAUSES IMPROVEMENT TWELVE MEN MISSING Sydney, January 11. [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 12 January 1929
BUSH FIRES POSITION IN N.S.W. RAIN CAUSES IMPROVE- MENT TWELVE MEN MISSING Sydney, January 11. With cooler weather, the fires which raged in many parts of New South Wales for two days have died down, and with a few exceptions, danger has pass- ed, for the present. Steady rain is fall- ing in the north of the State, and is a welcome relief from the long dry spell. It is hoped that the rain will extend. A storm at Eureka, near Lismore, &nbsp; wrecked the Methodist church. Fires are still burning in the Blue Mountains, and in the southern parts of the State. Extensive areas of grass have been swept in the Wagga district, &nbsp; where everything is dry and inflam- &nbsp; able. The latest reports state that the fire-fighters have been successful, in checking the flames, but that there is still danger of further losses, owing to a rising wind. The fires at Mittagong kept volun- teers busy last night. Stock, fencing, and grass were destroyed, and orchards also suffe...
VICTORIAN OUTBREAK FIRES ALONG PRINCE'S HIGHWAY Melbourne, January 11. [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 12 January 1929
VICTORIAN OUTBREAK FIRES ALONG PRINCE'S HIGHWAY Melbourne, January 11. A message from Arbust states thai bush fires along the Prince's Highway reached a magnitude which endangered the township of Noorinbee, adjacent to the Cann River. A change in the wind, which at one time reached a velocity of sixty miles an hour, saved Noorinbee from destruction. In some parts fall- ing trees blocked the Prince's Highway, which has since been cleared. Reports from Wodong state that fires are still burning in the Kiewa valley, at Gundowring, and across the ranges at Sandy Creek, but that the position is greatly improved owing to precaution - ary measures by residents.
DESPERATE FIGHT HALF A NOSE BITTEN OFF Sydney, January 11. [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 12 January 1929
DESPERATE FIGHT HALF A NOSE BITTEN OFF Sydney, January 11. Two men, who engaged in a desperate fight to-night, were subsequently a mitted to hospital at Newcastle. Half of the nose of one of the men was miss- ing, it having apparently been bitten j- off. He had also the marks of teeth in a wound on his arm. The other man had his face slashed from the top of j- the left ear to the chin. Both were covered in cuts and scratches. They refused to give the police any information. "Who said I was fight ing, "said one of the injured men. "I &nbsp; have been playing patience." They were placed in beds by side. A consignment of rivets was recent- ly rushed from London to Amsterdam by airships in time to keep work go- ing on a big building. Bolts from the blue.

IVHY AUDIENCES LftU6HE?5. One of the pitfalls which thr ex LRini»ore orator has to avoid is mixed r.etaphors. These Caws of speech nave made mere than one speaker !oo'c end feel exceedingly foolish.

Lord Curzon once addressed the House of Lords in the following man ner : 'The ship of State is careering slowly towards the edge of the preci pice, and the brink over which it will go is civil war.'
